gearystwatcher writes “Former Sun CEO Scott McNealy talks to The Reg on where things went wrong, and acquisition by Oracle: ‘We probably got a little too aggressive near the end and probably open sourced too much and tried too hard to appease the community and tried too hard to share,’ McNealy said. ‘You gotta take care of your shareholders or you end up very vulnerable like we got. We were a wonderful acquisition — we got stolen for a song at the bottom of the Dow.’”
